3:03 am
for being nominated as the new secretary of state . that could be the reason why. if so she would need to be confirmed by lawmakers. republicans are outraged over the comments rice made in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that could be problematic. >> initially it was a spontanous reaction to what transspired in carey as a consequence of the video. >> that explanation continues to dodge rice. senator mccain said rice failed to get the facts straight. >> don't we all have a responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people and all five sunday morning shows for verifying that the facts were true. there is classified information that she had access to that contradicted that. and said al-qaida was decimated along with bin laden being killed.

3:06 am
definitely. senator mccane doesn't believe it. she didn't attack john mccain and said i respect john mccain for his service and i look forward to talking to him and explaining my side of the story. how could senator mccain go i don't want to talk to her . senator graham said i i can't give my time? she is a scholar and see if she can win them over. i don't think that john kerry is really on everyone's a list anyway and they might be saying are we better off as a nation. >> gretchen: y are right. she is putting those top three republicans in a box in the meeting today. it will be difficult for them to come out now and criticize her, she is the one who offered the olive branch to come and have the meeting with them.
3:07 am
it is nothing to do with whether or not she should be secretary of state. but the optics of this and work in her favor in a huge way today. >> steve: generally before somebody is nominated for a big job they go talk to the opposite party. it could be an explanation of why she would being up to capitol hill with mike morell. i said that because this guy's department told me to say that? >> brian: we know the cia's director said someone edited my talking points. it is more than just her side of the story. >> we would be well served to have one group of senators from all of the relative committees interview the witness and dod and department of state and cia should be interviewed so we can get the same story and compare notes.

it's not right. we're going to tell you the complete story, see if you think it's right or wrong. "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday starts right now. >> brian: a little snow is coming. >> gretchen: oh, no! seriously? >> brian: an inch or two, maybe. what planet are you on? >> steve: it's that period between thanksgiving and christmas. if it was a foot, i'd be horrified. but it's just a little taste of winter. >> gretchen: you know what? i'm with you, steve. i am so much into the christmas spirit this year, i told my husband last night that every day i'm -- i love look at the lights. look at that. let's all northbound a great mood as we move forward to christmas time this year. >> steve: look at that, our christmas trees match our zipper around the building. >> brian: that's intentional. >> gretchen: was that planned?
4:02 am
>> steve: don't know. >> brian: it was a good idea. the president and republican congressional leaders will meet with several ceo's to brain storm how to avoid falling off that fiscal cliff. doug is joining us live from washington with the latest. are we going over the cliff or is this a slope? >> it's that thelma and louise moment. yeah. just over a month to go before we reach the cliff, if it gets that far. these are obviously the key players in all this, president obama and congressional leaders from both parties. they're not the only players and both sides are now look for input from the business community as to what should really happen here as get closer and closer to the cliff. from the president today, we're going to see the start of just an all-out pr blitz to raise taxes. he meets with small business owners today, tomorrow it's ceo's that will pay higher taxes. while the white house says he's seeking vicious his mind appears to be made up.
4:03 am
>> he's made that clear, i've made that clear. others made it clear and that is a firm position. the reason noor is very practical, because you can't -- math tells us that you can't get the kind of balanced approach that you need without having rates be part of the equation. >> the republicans now say they are open to compromise. willing to consider increased tax revenue, but they think it should come from limiting deductions on wealthier americans, leaving tax rates where they are. >> republicans stepped out of our comfort zone. we've been clear about what we'll do and what we won't. yet, we remain at an impasse. leading us to ask why? >> republicans on the hill, meantime, are going to meet with erskine bowles, former clinton administration official who served as the co-chair of the
4:04 am
president's debt commission, remember that in 2010. he was pushing for systemic tax reform and tackling entitlements that is going to be a tough sell with many democrats. steve, gretchen and brian, back to you. >> steve: all right. we thank you very much. also up on capitol hill later today, susan rice, who made those controversial comments shortly after the benghazi attack where she said it was all spontaneous. it was because of that video, she's going to meet with the three u.s. senators and because they have all come out and said look, she's a problem. she should not be secretary of state. she's going to meet with all three of them today trying to sell herself and right next to her, the guy who heads up currently the c.i.a. so any time she says, i got it from the intel committee headed up by that guy, mr. morell, he's going to tell the senators what really happened. >> gretchen: the headline here is that she called for this meeting with the three biggest
4:05 am
critics of her supposedly trying to become secretary of state. >> steve: 'cause she's in trouble. >> gretchen: yeah, but this is a very smart move by susan rice because i think it puts these three senators who have been critical of her, although they came off of criticism of her on the sunday talk shows, not really sure why, now she asked for this meeting. it's going to be interesting to see what they say coming out of this meeting. are they still going to be as critical. they seem to have lessened their criticism even premeeting of susan rice. >> brian: i think they're saying this, we know if you say you got those talking points, fine. but what kind of potential secretary of state would take unclassified talking points, take them as gospel and go, this is where we stand and say you got the intel community, this was the intel gave you. when we heard a week ago from the former c.i.a. director who said i thought it was al-qaeda within 24 hours.
4:06 am
it was edited out. they said, oh, those, i touched it, essentially politics enters in. if she says i went by this paper, what kind secretary of state goes by this paper and doesn't use all her plethora of contacts to find out what the real story is? >> steve: exactly. keep in mind, in addition to the unclassified talking points she works also had access to the classified. so she knew it really was happening. bill o'reilly was talking to john mccain about this last night and here is a little of their conversation. >> is she a dishonest woman, senator? is she dishonest? did she go out there knowing what she said was false and say it anyway? that's the crux of this matter. >> i don't think it was a matter of dishonesty. it was a matter, again, of responsibility. there was plenty of information out there, which she has access to, which contradicted what she said. if you're telling the american people, speaking for the white house, it was the white house that sent her out, off responsibility to make sure that those facts are accurate.
4:07 am
>> steve: in addition to those three u.s. senators who we mentioned, what they're also trying to do, according to a senior senate aide, is sound out the moderate republicans to find out whether susan rice would be okay for them because they would like to avoid any sort of embarrassment if there is going to be a big fight over her. >> gretchen: everyone will be watching the lead from mccain, graham, and ayotte because they have been the most critical of susan rice. that's why this meet something so paramount today, because if they come out of this meeting and they suddenly seem to be a little bit even more in favor of her, well, we'll consider looking at her, other republicans will probably look to them because they were the most critical. and they'll think well, if they're okay with her nomination now, i have no idea what they're going to say after the meeting. maybe they're going to change their minds out again. >> brian: the intel community doesn't like being thrown under the bus. they are, by this potential secretary of state. what kind of relationship, the intel community going to have
4:08 am
with this potential secretary of state if they thank is how she got the job, by saying i just read what they gave me? >> gretchen: what's also interesting is that hillary clinton did not go out on the sunday talk shows to talk about it, even though she is the secretary of state. wouldn't it be ironic that the woman who did go out and talk about it ends up becoming the secretary of state. now the rest of your headlines. was yasser arafat poisoned? palestinian authorities think so, so they opened up his grave and took samples. it started before dawn under the cover of huge sheets. a few hours later, his grave was closed back up. there has been persistent speculation in the arab world for the last eight years that israel poisoned the 75-year-old leader. israel denies that claim. medicine washed down with grapefruit juice can kill you. drugs to watch out for, growing

>> "two and a half men," if you watch "two and a half men," please don't watch it. i'm on "two and a half men." i don't want to be on it. please stop watching it. please stop filling your head with filth. >> gretchen: wow. the 19-year-old talked about his religious awakening in the video and said no god fearing person could be on a tv show like that. he says he wants to be fired, but he still is cashing his weekly check of $350,000. interesting back story here, guys, apparently he allegedly had a drug issue and then found religion and now he doesn't like the message of this show. you got to love people who stand up for their conviction. >> brian: right. while he cashed the check annually, it's easy to stand up -- >> gretchen: he wants to be fired now. >> brian: this is the last year of the series! he's gog have residuals. this is what you do, give all the residuals to the people from "gilligan's island" because they
4:11 am
got nothing. and "bewitched" and" the brady bunch." >> steve: even though he was fired, god wants me to be on the show. let's tell you about this, up in rhode island, this lady was look out and she saw this car, this yellow sports car whiz by and these kids vandalized her mailbox. what does she do? calls the cops and they took the description and found the yellow sports car and in it, five boys. well, to reprimand the boys, what the cops did was say, you kids, get outside the car and do 12 pushups. a neighbor videotaped it. they did the pushups, then they were allowed toly. the cops took the names, did not file a criminal report. no police report. none of the parents were called until that video aired on a local tv station. >> brian: i love it. >> gretchen: i love it, too. what's the big whoop? people should be getting a lot more discipline than 12 pushups for vandalizing somebody's
4:12 am
mailbox? how about paying for it, number one? this is what's wrong with society now. we don't have enough discipline. >> brian: and not fit you have as a society. >> steve: we'll have you tell us whether or not it was right. the mayor would like to see the cops suspended. if i was one of the kids and my parents didn't find out and there was no police record and i would never do that again, not bad. >> brian: i would do squat thrusts to avoid that. straight ahead, can republicans help stop america from falling off the fiscal cliff without breaking their pledge to raise taxes? senator james imhoff says there's a way. he's here next o explain how. >> gretchen: buyer, beware. cars damaged in hurricane sandy are now up for sale. but you got to watch out. what you need to know. that one doesn't look so hot. >> brian: there is a tuner in my radiator it's a new day.

4:16 am
>> brian: clock is ticking as we approach the fiscal cliff. economists say the automatic combo of tax hikes and spending cuts may plunge the country into recession. tax increases on wealthy americans are the big sticking point because of an antitax pledge many republicans signed. but should those same republicans back off the pledge and make a deal? what do the democrats have to do? >> gretchen: jim imhoff joins us live with his thoughts. senator, should republicans back away from the pledge? >> no, gretchen, i don't think so. if you do that, you're assuming that there is no other way to do this and there is many other ways to get this done. i actually introduced a bill long before the election that covers a way to come up with the amount of money, not .1.2 trillion, but 2.7 trillion, and increase spending and the
4:17 am
military. some of these things, like medicare, back to the states. medical malpractice reform, strengthen work force by attrition. i've got the bill and it's there and i want people to look it up. it's senate bill 3473. it solves the problem. we have other ways. whatever happened to the old democrats? remember it was kennedy back in the '60s that said we got to raise more money, more revenue for the great society programs and the bestncrease revenue is to reduce marginal rates. he did it and what happened? he increased the amount of money that came from rates, 94 billion. then along came reagan, same thing. the total amount of money raised by marginal rates in 1980 was 244 billion. at the end of that decade, 466 billion. that was during the decade of the real streamlining of taxes and tax reduction.
4:18 am
so that's the way we can grow it. for every 1% increase in the economic activity, that produces $40 billion new revenue. we've got to get that through their heads. again, that wasn't a republican notion. that was democrat notion. >> brian: senator, i know you're not going to get everything you want and democrats theoretic won't. what do you have to see on the other side to give at all on any of these things? what movement has to be made? >> i'd like to see them try different things. first of all, let's recognize the fact that we had the deficits right now as a result of obama's budget. that's $5.3 trillion. that's in his budget. he signed that. we have a lot of the programs that should be undone. give you an example, we had a democrat president back in the '90s, bill clinton, while we had a republican majority in the house and the senate. we did welfare reform. we put the work back into welfare and it was tremendously successful. we decreased the welfare rolls.
4:19 am
now, obama's reversed that. now we have it's gone up, the food stamp program now gone up from 28 million families to 47 million. that's just one of the things that can be reversed, that got news this mess to start with. >> gretchen: but senator, why does it appear -- and obviously the election was a result of it -- why does it appear that president obama wins the pr campaign on this entire discussion? >> well, gretchen, i represent oklahoma. he hasn't won up there. >> gretchen: but he's winning it acrossment country. >> well, i know, he's a very persuasive person. that doesn't mean that as a member of the united states senate that you have to look at public opinion and say, well, he's going to win this thing. again, i've got 20 kids and grandkids that are depending on me -- >> gretchen: what do republicans need to do to get a better pr message out there to combat? i mean, when you look at the math and what you're talking about, it makes a lot of sense! why is the message not out
4:20 am
there? >> i don't know. maybe we're not as persuasive as obama is perhaps. but in this case, so long as let people know -- that's what i'm doing right now. i'm saying there are other alternatives. this obsession that the president has for tax increases is something that we've got to get around and republicans are going to turn into democrats if we don't. >> brian: thanks so much. we'll look forward to the next few days to see if there will be any movement. this four years than the last four years any difference. thanks very much. coming up, murder mystery in mexico. beauty queen gunned down. who pulled the trigger? >> gretchen: evidence that could have helped convict casey anthony missed? her defense attorney, jose baez knew about it. of course, he didn't bring it up. he joins us live next [ male announcer ] every day, thousands of people like you, are choosing advil® because helps you keep doing what you love. no wonder it's america's #1 selling pain reliever.

>> gretchen: almost 24 minutes past the top of the hour. $211, that's how much the u.s. treasury borrowed per household on black friday after taking thanksgiving off. that increased the u.s. debt by over $24 billion in just one day. that's depressing. next, 2 million. that's how many unemployed americans could lose their benefit at the end of the year if lawmakers allow the programs to expire as scheduled. finally, more than 154,000, that's how many background checks the f.b.i. got for gun buyers on black friday. that's up from last year. steve? >> steve: thanks. the florida sheriff's office admitted sunday the key evidence in the casey anthony murder trial might have been missed. detectives overlooked a google search on the anthony family computer for full proof suffocation that was made the last day two-year-old caylee was seen alive.
4:25 am
so could this bombshell have changed the outcome of the murder case? joining us now to weigh in is casey anthony's lead defense attorney and the author of "presumed guilty," jose baez joins us. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, steve. >> steve: okay. so the way we understand it, the cops took the anthony family computer, looked at it and the investigator just looked at the internet browser, the internet explorer and saw about a dozen, dozen and a half things they made a note of. didn't look into the fire fox browser, which had more than 1200 entries, including the search for full proof suffocation. now h they brought that up, you would think -- that could have made a difference? >> i don't think so. in fact, the actual computer searches and the evidence that results from the computer benefits the defense more than it does the prosecution.
4:26 am
and what's being reported is that they didn't look at the m. >> illa fire fox. that's not true. they printed out the activity, so they knew all of the internet and computer activity throughout the entire day and they did a complete time line. i think, and it is my opinion, that this information was kept from the defense because if -- it destroyed completely the prosecution's time line that casey anthony left at 12:50 that day. that's what is pointing the finger directly at casey, because she was last seen with caylee when she was alive. who was she last seen by? george anthony leaving the house at 12:50. but there is computer activity throughout the day. so the problem that the prosecution had is they can't have their cake and eat it too. she either left the house or someone is lying about the time they saw her alive. >> steve: here is the thing,
4:27 am
jose, for instance, at our house, we use different browsers. i use the foxfire at our house on the big computer and my kids use the internet explorer. at the anthony house, apparently casey used the firefox and the rest of her family used the internet explorer. it was on the firefox where apparently full proof suffocation was google! >> that's not true. in fact, there are other searches that they recovered from the mozilla firefox that was on that computer. so to say well, they didn't search -- they completely forgot there is firefox browser on this computer is completely inaccurate. >> steve: jose, why would somebody, the day that the little girl went missing, why did somebody and who at that house, looked up full proof suffocation? >> you know, that's a great question and that's something i laid out in my book. it really is speculation. you can never put someone behind
4:28 am
a computer and say this person ran this search and did this. that's the biggest thing that forensic experts will tell you. in my bookers i laid out different arguments for both sides and basically say you can argue casey did it, but of course, there is testimony that she left the house. so who did this? i go into the actual profiles to give you a little bit of a better example. >> steve: jose what, if your client would have been the one who did that search? >> well, you know, i don't get into what ifs. there is no indication and i had absolutely nothing from my client that told me she ran those searches. so, you know, i could only go by what the evidence is. she didn't testify in this case. so if it can't be corroborated, it can only be speculated. that's what came out in this case and a lot of speculation. what's being reported about these searches is completely false. these were suicide-related
4:29 am
searches. >> steve: you think her father was thinking about killing himself? >> well, he actually attempted suicide several months later. so, you know, it just calls for nothing but speculation. however, the time line of this case is what's the most important fact. you have computer activity that shows completely the opposite of what the testimony is, then i have to argue. it helps the defense more than anything. >> steve: all right. interesting conversation. jose baez joining us from miami. thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. >> steve: half past the top of the hour. the president wants to you believe that we should let those bush era tax cuts expire to raise more cash. but does the president's math add up? not exactly. we'll show you coming up next. then buyer beware. cars flooded in sandy up for sale and it's the ones that loar perfect that you need to look out for. that as we roll on from new york

>> well, the post office announces they lost $16 billion this year. they now say they're going to
4:34 am
review their business model. [ laughter ] let me tell you something, okay? if you're losing $16 billion a year, you don't have a business model. okay? you have a going out of business model. it's not a business model. >> steve: they've had that for years. >> brian: right. and i thought the peel away stamp would be their ticket stardom. when you stop licking stamps, i thought for sure the post office would change everything. >> gretchen: yeah. i thought standing in line for hours and hours would finally be the ticket to success. >> brian: that would be a negative, to get an envelope. listen, if we want to raise enough revenue to get the post office in the black again, would we be able to do it by raising taxes on the rich? >> steve: that's the big question. and the answer is yes. let's say that they go ahead and they sunset those bush era tax cuts on the wealthiest people. that would create, what, 82 billion over one year. that would operate the postal service for exactly one year. that's all. >> gretchen: so would people
4:35 am
rather do that or would they rather not get their mail on saturday? wasn't that the other option? >> steve: that was one of the options. >> gretchen: i like to get my mail on sunday, if they could add that. >> brian: my mailman just got used to my dog. i'd hate for him not to be there on weekends. we had a few millionmen that said, i'm just going to leave it at the curb. >> gretchen: why not? my dog is bigger than i am. >> brian: but he's a nice dog. >> steve: the president of the united states ran his election where he said, you know what? we've got a definite sit problem and we can fix everything if we simply end the bush era tax cuts on the wealthiest 1 or 2% of americans. but when you do the math and you look at how much money that would actually create, it would create enough money, sure, to run the post office for a year, but the ent government for 8 1/2 days. so if that only covers 8 1/2 days, what does the federal government, those 8 1/2 days what, does the government do with the other 354 days? >> gretchen: they just tax people for 194 years, because
4:36 am
that's what the math shows us, that it would take 194 years to actually pay off the debt with those particular tax cuts expiring. it's all about messaging, though, folks. that populist message worked, fair share, rich people don't pay their fair share. the is% -- 1%, 99%. republicans need to simplify their messaging like the democrats did so that they can also get their messaging across. they have good messages! >> brian: get a catch phrase that rhymes. >> steve: sure. call frank luntz on that. okay. so the election has been determine. the president of the united states now has another four years. we would only cover 8 1/2 days. >> brian: it's a trophy. that's all it is. a trophy to say i raised it on the rich. we'll find out what's happening with that. meanwhile, maria molina knows what's happening with the weather. i understand winter is here. >> that's right. a little early.
4:37 am
we're going to be seeing snow here in new york city. not just even for us, but even as we head west. it's really west that they'll be looking at the accumulating snowfalls across parts of pennsylvania and even the state of maryland and also portions of the state of west virginia. so the storm system is pretty large. not the snowfall, but also we are looking at rain and thunderstorms as we head southbound across parts of virginia, maryland, and even all the way down in through portions of texas and louisiana. again, very large storm system. but the good news is that it doesn't have a lot of moisture with it. it's pretty weak and it also is going to be moving relatively quickly. by tomorrow, many areas that are seeing the precipitation today will actually start to dry out and be seeing sunshine. behind it it is also going to get colder. do keep that in mind. we have the snow across portion of eastern ohio, pen opinion, and just outside of the new york city area. should start raining and snowing here any minute now. we do have winter weather advisories across pennsylvania, northwestern parts of new jersey, through west virginia. that's why we're expecting
4:38 am
accumulating snowfall, between two to four inches. a look at the future radar. where the storm is going, by 3:00 p.m. tuesday, we're going to continue to see more snowflakes flying around the new york city area and further off towards the south across portion of new jersey. by 9:00 p.m. tuesday, the storm is gone. most areas across northeast pretty dry, boston, you'll continue to see snowflakes. but the worst of it winding down. >> steve: all right. hey, maria, here is a big question: brian and i want to know whether or not we should put our snow tires on the car. >> brian: right. or the chains. >> gretchen: i guess i just won't drive. >> winter is around the corner, right? so you got to winterize your car. >> steve: there you go. all season steel belted radials. >> not because of this storm, though. >> steve: okay. >> gretchen: thanks. the funny thing is, when i live around the country and i still had minnesota license plates when i lived in dallas, people would follow me thinking that i knew what the heck i was doing. >> brian: and? >> gretchen: driving down the road. i'd feel like, hey, i haven't lived there full time since i was 17. don't follow me. i'm not necessarily good in the snow anymore.
4:39 am
>> brian: they probably thought they were talking to fran tarkenton. >> gretchen: let's do headlines. the country's largist organic peanut processor shut down. this comes after a salmonella outbreak that made 41 people sick. for the first time, the f.d.a. used new power grants bid the 011 food safety law and closed the plant in new mexico. it planned to reopen today until the f.d.a. suspended its license. now the company will have a hearing to prove the plant is clean enough. it's actually reopened. >> steve: a mexican beauty queen gunned down in a shootout between drug traffickers and soldiers. police say maria gamez was riding with suspected members of the sinola cartel when they opened fire on soldiers. when the gun battle was over, five people were dead. police say gamez's body was found lying next to an assault rifle, but they don't know if she participated in the shootout. >> brian: cars damaged in super

4:42 am
it will be the nets who would beat up on the knicks in overtime by a final score of 96-89. they just flat out ran out of gas. and now baseball. third baseman for the tampa bay rays, longoria, agreed to a new contract. four-year deal -- i'm thinking of the woman -- $100 million. in addition to $36 million deal already in place. this doesn't look good, of course, for the mets in signing david wright. they'll have to pay about the same amount and the mets really can't pay for anything. >> steve: you're review on the new ball yard in brooklyn? >> better than the garden. unbelievably nice and i went to a net game where the knicks were there and there was more net fans than knicks fans. they have an identity. jay-z and i made eye contact a few times. i said, all right. hang in there. and he, well -- >> gretchen: he invited you down? >> brian: not exactly. i looked at him. >> steve: but you could see him?

forever. >> gretchen: there are so many kids who need that loving family. pat, i respect you so much as so many millions of other people do because you decided, you and your wife decided to bring 14 children into your life, along with your biological children. why? >> that was a ten-year period, 1983 to 1993. i wish i could tell you there was a huge master plan here, but we just had a hard time saying no. we would hear about these two or these four from the philippines or romania fell open and all of a sudden these orphans are coming out of there. we just said, we can do that. we can take two more. four philippino boys and let's just do it. so that's the only answer i can give you. we never sat down and counted the cost, the $80,000 a year food bills and the one year when 16 were all teen-agers at the same time. >> gretchen: i know. you were probably thinking, what have i done? karen, i want to listen to a bit

days. meanwhile, week before we fall off the fiscal cliff at the conclusion of this year, lawmakers in washington are reaching out to the people who actually run businesses for help. molly henneberg joins us live from the white house today to tell us about the meeting at casablanca. >> good morning. any president has the bully pulpit and president obama intends to use it more and more, the white house says, to get across his message, his solution on the fiscal cliff. so today he will meet with small business owners here at the white house. tomorrow he will meet with middle class americans. and on friday, he'll make the public case for extending tax cuts on the middle class and raising taxes on families making more than $250,000 when he visits a business in pen opinion. the president's press secretary says on this highly charged issue, quote, public communication is essential. >> some of the lessons that we learned over the last four years have to do with always being mindful of the fact that engaging the public on these
5:05 am
sometimes chewy policy debates is important because they care and they have a deep stake in the outcome of the debate. so we'll continue to do that. >> carney also says the president strongly opposes extending tax cuts for families making over $250,000. he says that's the president's, quote, firm position. democrats are standing with him on that. while republicans are asking what is the president ready to compromise on? >> so we'll continue to wait on the president, hope that he has what it takes to bring people together and forge a compromise. if he does, we'll get there. and if he doesn't, we won't. it's that simple. >> the senate has spoken. president obama has spoken. he's promised he will not sign any bill that mortgages our future to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. >> house republican speaker john boehner says the gop is looking for a deal that cuts spending and closes tax loopholes and

5:07 am
true compromise and working together. remember during the health care debate we were all talking about how, well, if you don't agree to this, premiums are going to go up. and doctors are going to leave the profession and health care will continue to skyrocket. well, they jammed through health care, premiums are going up, doctors are leaving the profession, and people are still incredibly uneasy and anxiety ridden about this. they said the same thing about stimulus, if we didn't pass it. they said the same thing about tarp one. here is my question for these wobbly republicans and democrats who tell us the sky is falling: where have they been for the last two years? the american people have been waiting for two years to have common sense action. i'm so tired of obama putting a gun to the head of the american people and then republicans just saying, oh, what are we going to do? they're all wilting and running around. >> gretchen: you're thinking exactly as i'm thinking this morning. why, why, why, why, has so much time been wasted? i find it amazing that the republicans are now going to sit
5:08 am
down with erskine bowles today. he came up with the debt commission two years ago! we've wasted all this time and i think it's one of the reasons why congress' rate of approval is below 10%. >> yeah. and gretchen, that's exactly right. i think at a time like this, we have to start asking foundational questions. fundamental questions. leadership. what does it mean? is it leadership to do this whole razzle dazzle act and bring the ceo's in and then we're going to community organize for tax increases. we're going to do rallies and we're going to force the republicans' hand and then claim well, the american people are with us. that's not leadership. leadership is when you have the time to deliberately go through the issues in a serious and mature manner, you do so. even if an election is on the line. even if everybody is watching, even if it's not behind closed doors. once again, i think at the end of the day, the american people are going to get the short end of this stick because they won't see what the negotiations really were. and they'll be told on christmas
5:09 am
eve oh, all parties have come together of the we'll have a foe foe op and we're all supposed to be happy and i would say we should look very carefully about the republican who are willing to cave on first principles without having a single sub tantive discussion on what's really on the line. i find it appalling. >> brian: you know what i find different this time? in the "new york times," they list all the democrats who have no interest in revamping any entitlements. >> of course not. not why should they? >> brian: by the way, i'm noticing what's coming up. i'm just wondering, is this the first time the president could be running into head winds with his own party? could they be to the left of the president? >> well, i moon, that will just make him look good, right? i think this is all well choreographed. i would be surprised if they hadn't consulted with steven spielberg before this whole act was played out before the american people.
5:10 am
oh, the left will say, we're not going to touch this and the president will say, for the good of the country, we need to at least discuss some beginnings of changes. he'll look good. >> gretchen: are we selling republicans short here? >> oh, us? no. >> gretchen: wait, wait. just because some of them have come out and said, maybe we don't agree with grover norquist's pledge anymore. maybe we should get rid of some of these deductions to try and increase some revenues, i mean, isn't that a way of coming to the table? it doesn't mean that they're going to give away everything. they'd be stupid to give away everything unless democrats also agree to cut spending. >> gretchen, may i say, if we go to our negotiations for anything, do you start by saying, a pay cut? i want to start there. i want a pay cut. i don't really want a 401(k) and -- >> gretchen: you try lot of other things. >> you know what i mean? you start by saying, this is a serious issue facing this country. we want to do talk about it for
5:11 am
months. i'm glad the president wants to sit down. we want to do it so all of americans can watch this play out. all these discussions. you don't start like handing over things to the democrats. i think mitch mcconnell, you are right, mitch mcconnell, i think a lot of republicans out there want to throw everyone in leadership over the bow. but he's actually been in an adult in the room and he said consistentsly, look, mr. president, come to capitol hill. let's talk. they've been saying this to the president for well over a year now. and i think he's actually -- he seems to be holding a line, but republicans should look forward to a 2014 wipeout if they compromise without getting some real verifiable cuts and i just don't see those coming. >> steve: we should know within the month. meanwhile, later on today, it looks like up on capitol hill susan rice would like to be our secretary of state, is going to sit down with john mccain, lindsey graham, and senator ayotte as well. these are the three people who have said, you know, she really shouldn't be secretary of state. she's going up there 'cause
5:12 am
there is some tough talk and she's trying to sell herself. >> we were just talk being this great big press conference that ayotte and mccain and graham had, they rushed out to the cameras and they talked at it we somebody in the secretary of state who would tell the truth to the american people. and now again, the first sign of trouble, the first sign that the white house was going to stand firm and the president stuck his chest out and said, come after me, well, now it looks like susan rice will have a smooth sailing. >> gretchen: exactly. >> -- to become secretary of state. i think the american people watch this, they don't know what to think about these republicans. my twitter feed this morning for a lot of reasons is blowing up. i'm gog have a big announcement on twitter later today. but blowing up. people are saying, look, i'm done with the republican party for the time being. until they show me that they can lead when the going gets tough, then i'm just tuning them out. >> gretchen: they already changed their message. on the sunday talk shows,
5:13 am
mccain started changing his message like maybe she might be okay. she was smart to set up this meeting with them because -- >> of course, she's smart, yeah. think about it, for susan rice to have been sent out that sunday, she knew she didn't know anything. she knew she had talking points, but she must have known, that's kind of odd, you know. i'm not really involved in benghazi. that's not really my per view, but i'm going to go out. it doesn't pass the straight face test. is she the most important player in this? no. of course not. is she significant? yes. and i say for all those people who are going to be sent out by presidents to tell a story to the american people, if susan rice didn't get confirmed, that would be quite a powerful message. >> steve: she's going to do her selling today and it's good the three senators will sit down and hear her side of the story behind closed doors. let's see if it changes any minds. >> go to my web site. >> steve: i follow you. >> thank you. >> brian: you have a big announcement today? >> yes, i do. >> brian: okay. we'll be twitter side. >> steve: straight ahead, americans don't want them, but

>> brian: american car maker has a bold new business plan of the make cars that will actually lose money. yep. why would they do such a thing, you ask? well, the government may have something to do with that. steve motley is the president of less what's happening with the electric car and how is that playing into what gm and chrysler are doing? >> there is two things. one, we need to know is all levels of government have spent $6.5 billion since 2008 on subsidies for electric cars, plug in cars, hybrids, et cetera. the total market share of plug-in cars after ten years on
5:18 am
the market is .65%. just over is one half of 1%. why do they continue to press forward? one, you have gm and chrysler who are bailout recipients. two, you have california and ten other states that are mandating that you can't sell cars in our state at all unless you have zero emission cars as an increasing part of your fleet for sale. so these companies are being forced to build cars that make no money, that lose the money to meet the mandates of these states. i want to point something out. chevy volt already cost $89,000 for gm to make. that's after three-plus billion dollars of just federal subsidies and they sell them for 40,000. so they already lose 49 grand on each volt they sell. this is not a new business model per se. but a very dumb one that we're expanding because of these states. >> brian: chrysler will roll out their own. nissan is backing off. toyota is backing off. we know they went to hibernation

on the volt. chrysler is rolling it out, but ten states are mandating plug-in vehicle, clean running vehicles like this? >> 11. california and ten others. maryland, new jersey, yes. they're mandating zero emission cars be an increasing part of their fleet or you can't sell your cars in the state. now, small states like new jersey and maryland, not so much. but when a state as big as california, which is 10% of the u.s. market says you need to have these cars, it's a serious impediment for companies and they may be forced to make stupid cars that lose them money just to get in the california market. >> brian: it's unbelievable. we'll watch this. america is saying, we don't like the electric car. we don't like this type of electric car. but we're still getting it jammed down our throats. thanks so much. >> it's genius. thank you very much. >> brian: i sense the sarcasm. remember this guy, the governor of rhode island, took the christmas out of tree last year? well, he just went one step further. why is he smiling then? and you know him from

5:36 am
state's christmas tree a holiday tree. we talked about it on the program. his office was flooded with thousands of phone calls protesting the name change and, well, he's at it again. now he's pulling the plug on the entire christmas tree lighting ceremony. there is speculation he cancel the event to avoid any more controversy after last year's mess. >> brian: he's biting the hand that fed him millions of dollars. i'm talking about angus jones. you never heard of him? yes, you have. he plays jake on "two and a half men." he's telling people not to watch his show because it's filth. >> "two and a half men," if you watch "two and a half men," please don't watch "two and a half men." i don't want to be on it. please stop watching it. please stop filling your head with filth. >> brian: you stop cashing your checks and don't make $8 million a year and then tell us not to watch your show. how mad would you be if you're the producers of this show? i digress. >> steve: steamed. >> brian: the 19-year-old talked about his religious awakening in this video and said, no god
5:37 am
fearing person could be on a tv show like that. but he says he wants to be fired now that it's in his last season, but he's still cashing his check worth 3550 -- $350,000 a week. >> steve: brilliant. >> gretchen: they've had a few problems with that show, right? >> brian: i have not heard of this. what do you mean? >> gretchen: starts with a cs. >> steve: are you not familiar. >> gretchen: he seems to be so legitimate. we've all been there after some shopping, we walk out to the parking lot and we can't find our car. but who is better at finding it? men, women or kids? according to a new study, it's men. that's because men typically use distance to get their bearings and are better at estimating the distance to their parked car. directions are a whole nother matter. >> brian: after shopping, it's the thing we look forward to most. going home. >> gretchen: me, too, actually. more women apparently use the
5:38 am
landmarks, so the study says. now this can make the ladies feel better because both men and women admit to having a hard time finding their cars. i want to know how many billions of dollars intent on that stupid study. >> brian: no, i find that -- >> steve: we know the answer. >> gretchen: who cares? >> brian: i think there is people out there who want something to argue about today. >> steve: we just gave it to them. new video just in of the snow already starting to fall in pennsylvania. >> brian: just on that one car. >> steve: it's also falling in new jersey. it's falling at chris chulo's house. the storm is coming from the midwest. it's expected to make this morning's commute a mess for people in the mid atlantic and northeast. for more, let's go to maria molina in the weather center. good morning. >> hey, good morning. good to see you. that's right. we're already seeing that snow and the rain coming down across portions of the northeast, including right here in new york city. people taking out their umbrellas. we don't have snow being reported yet in and out of the airports. but you can see some of that across portions of times square,
5:39 am
across midtown manhattan. so any moment now we're going to continue to see that rain spreading eastward along with that snow and we're going to see the airports possibly being delayed or flights possibly being delayed at the airports because of the precipitation. it's a large storm system. it stretches across portion of new england with some snowfall and further off towards the south across portions of louisiana and texas with some thunderstorms that are rolling on through portions of the south. the snowfall is not forecast to be very heavy. we're just forecasting between two to four inches of snow. coastal areas, you're not going to be seeing that snow sticking to the ground and you're going to be seeing a bit more of that mix along the roadways. we have winter weather advisories in effect across parts of pennsylvania, northwestern new jersey and through portions of the state of west virginia. that's really where we're expecting that accumulation of two to four inches. higher elevations could be seeing more snowfall, accumulating up to six inches. look at the future radar. the storm system is a quick mover. by tonight, most of the area is across northeast should be relatively quiet.
5:40 am
boston, still seeing a couple of snowflakes. >> steve: a little taste of snow. thank you very much. as advertised, here is chris chow low, his backyard. their home in new york. >> brian: nice house there. >> steve: that's the barn. that's the shed where -- >> gretchen: chris sleeps when he's in trouble. >> steve: i think that's great you're decorating the barn. >> gretchen: that is so cute, chris! >> brian: that's a nice railing. >> gretchen: how did you get all that done already? >> brian: that's when you -- where you keep the sheep and the cows? >> absolutely. >> steve: thank you, chris. >> no problem. >> brian: keep us updated on your house. >> no problem. i'll give a shot of the front yard next time. >> steve: talk to your wife, not us. there are still people in the new york city area who still do not have electricity. and we heard from the governor of the great state of new york yesterday say that the cost of this particular super storm exceeds the cost of katrina in dollars. >> brian: you talk about
5:41 am
residents, that's one challenge. what about businesses? people that live in business and try to live off their business? donna is being hugged by the president and has a inry in a that was destroyed. and guess what the insurance said? we only covered water that comes down. not that comes up. she asked the president for help. she joined us earlier. she's really disheartened. >> i was very excited and felt warm by the embrace thinking this is really going to happen. i'm going to get the help i need because he promised that. and it's been almost a month now and i've gotten no help and gotten nothing but no, you're not covered for this. no, you're not covered for that. and it's because of the way the storm hit and the water rising that i'm not covered for any contents in the entire business. i expected, when i was introduced to director of fema and the president told him to get me immediate help, i thought i was getting help from fema itself. not that i would have to go get a loan. and it's just greatly affected
5:42 am
so many people. >> brian: the loan is over 4%. it doesn't make sense for her to get it. fema is supposed to offer lower. one of the main people in businesses, over 200,000 people have their businesses on hold because of this. >> steve: we always hear about people and their circumstances during the photo op. but afterwards, as we married from her, not so good for her. >> gretchen: hopefully somebody saw that interview this morning and she's going to get some help today, would be nice. coming up, evidence that could have helped convict casey anthony missed. her defense attorney was just here. he knew about it. yeah, but why would he tell anyone? he was defending her. peter johnson, jr. on the case next. >> brian: then the most incredible video you'll see all day. this little boy running across the screen away from that out of control car i've been taking a multivitamin for years. centrum silver.

5:47 am
trial. let's talk to fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> yeah. how are you? that was a great interview this morning. sometimes defense lawyers who won their cases should keep their mouth shut and not write books because now the more we think about it, the more we think and a lot of americans think that yeah, maybe the jury got it wrong. in fact, she obviously was guilty and so now jose baez is spinning on your show and you asked very skillful questioning, said well, it really wouldn't have mattered. it would have been a bad thing for the prosecution and it would have helped us. the truth is, mr. baez revealed this fact, said somehow this full proof suffocation on the mozilla firefox google search was overlooked by the sheriff's office and not given to the prosecution. the prosecution concedes that they didn't have it. but now mr. baez is somehow spinning that withle, they did have it but didn't use it because it would have shown that
5:48 am
george anthony was really responsible. let's look. >> steve: we got the sound bite. here he is. >> what's being reported is that they didn't look at the mozilla firefox, when in fact that's not true. they scanned the entire computer and printed out a scan of the activity, so they knew all of the internet and computer activity throughout the entire day. i think, and it is my opinion, that this information was kept from the defense because if -- it destroyed completely the prosecution's time line that casey anthony left at 12:50 that day. >> steve: okay. so he says that the prosecution did know. but had the known that somebody in that house, the day the baby went missing googled full proof suffocation, that would have made a difference. >> yeah. it would have made a difference. there is always reasonable doubt. but i think the garbage at some point has to stop of the he had a lawyer's win. he won the case. i was one of the few lawyers who thought he tried a great case.
5:49 am
but at some point, at some point you stop talking about yourself and how good you were and not having evidence go forward or how the other side screwed up, or maybe that george anthony was really responsible. the tragedy shouldn't go on and on and on and on and on. it's not about a lawyer's win. it's about justice. and obviously based on this, i don't think justice was done in this case. full proof suffocation? it doesn't come in? >> steve: folks in tv land, e-mail us. >> enough of this. >> steve: if you were on the jury, would that have changed your mind? >> it would have changed my mind. >> steve: thank you very much. next up, take a look at this picture. that is marlon brandorgeating made up for "the godfather." first, let's check in with bill hemmer for a preview of what happens on the channel in ten minutes. >> that's when he was in a good mood clearly. >> steve: preorange slices.
